“Anytime I can see and listen to Catherine Heeg’s presentations at NTA’s TREX I make sure I clear my time and attend. Catherine is fun and gets you to think about communication tactics in a simple format to understand. I have found Catherine so informative attending her seminars and webinars, that I now can call myself a friend and a client. I listen to Catherine’s weekly marketing message too every Monday morning over my morning coffee. A few great tips for my social media every week! Thanks Catherine, you are the best!”

“I attended a presentation hosted by Catherine several years ago on social media.  When it was time for me to jump into the social medial ring for my agency I immediately thought of Catherine.  I was very impressed with the thoroughness and speed of her work in getting my agency set up on Facebook and me on LinkedIn.  I continue to use Catherine’s service in keeping my Facebook presence current and up to date.  I am a very satisfied customer of Catherine’s.”

“Catherine has provided several Social Media services to our Independent Agents and member agents for a number of years. We constantly are receiving great feedback about the level of the services that she provides to all of them. ADVAIA makes a point of telling all of our clients that they should utilize Catherine’s services to insure that they have a social media presence as we feel that this is a very important aspect of insuring client engagement. We find that many of our clients do not have the time to manage their social media, therefore, having Catherine provide those services insures that they have up-to-date content on their pages. Catherine is also great to work with!”
